Campus Cyclery Tool School.

We now have three options for maintenance classes.
New Rider Maintenance: If you just purchased a new bike or want to take better care of your existing bike, this is the course for you.
Intermediate Class: This is our most popular course. We have taken 8 years of classes and reformed our Tool School to cover more material with helpful lab exercises for hands on experience.
Advanced Class: This class is for people who have already taken the Intermediate Class and want to advance their maintenance skills to the next level.
Intermediate class sizes are limited to three so register early or you might miss out.
